Mother's Day

Happy Mother's Day

Happy Mother's Day to all of the mothers out there! I hope your day is special in a way that makes you happy.

I am spending the day with my husband and our grandson.  In my humble opinion, there should be more days like this in our calendar! Moms are often underappreciated and it is a good thing that there is at least one day when people stop and think about all that their mothers do or have done for them!

I am also excited for my daughter-in-law who is experiencing her very first Mother's Day with her beautiful new daughter.

Enjoy your day!

Happy Quilting,


FeatherweightFeatherweightI don't think a day goes by that I don't think about my mother.  She was such a wonderful person and is loved and remembered by anyone who ever met her.  As Mother's Day approaches,  I am especially thankful that my mother taught me how to be a good mom and I, in turn, could pass this on to my children.

My mother also has to be given credit for my quilting successes!!  Although my mom was not a quilter, she encouraged me each time I tried a new craft or hobby.  She demonstrated patience every time I needed her helpwith my newest craft or hobby!!!

Mother In Law

Patchwork PillowPatchwork PillowI was looking for something on the dreaded top shelf of the linen closet and came across this patchwork pillow.  My mother-in-law was a quilter.  Sometimes she would make pillows with some of the leftover pieces after completing a quilt top.  Ma (as she was lovingly called by everyone and anyone) made this pillow for my daughter.  This pillow spent many years in my daughter's doll cradle comforting the babies!!!
